Claiming for accident expenses in Watford
Compensation is split into general damages (injury) and special damages (financial).
General damages is calculated based on the following:
- The extent of your injuries;
- The recovery period from your injuries;
- Your prognosis for the future;
- The acceleration of any pre-existing conditions.
General damages can include physical and psychological injuries. The evidence to support each of the points listed above is ascertained through a medical examination.
Special damages is calculated based on the following:
- Evidence of loss of earnings, including overtime;
- Evidence of out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel;
- Predicting future financial hardships, based on injury recovery periods.
Your solicitor will collect all of the necessary evidence to build a strong case for special damages on your behalf. Special damages can be lower or exceed that of special damages.
In terms of how compensation is awarded, general damages and special damages are most usually combined into one lump sum. So for example, you may receive £1,500 in general damages and £1,000 in special damages, for a total of £2,500 in compensation.
